Mayor De Blasio Delivers Annual ‘State Of The City’ Address

Bill de Blasio Erik Thomas
In his most progressive State of City speech to date, Mayor Bill de Blaso rolled out a number of benefits for low-income and immigrant residents, including health care for all and paid vacations.
Universal healthcare has become a rallying cry for liberal Democrats and an article of faith for numerous new representatives in Congress. Officials claimed that New York's scheme would be the most comprehensive free healthcare system in America.
Saying more than 500,000 full- and part-time employees in New York City now have no paid time off, de Blasio said he will pursue local legislation that would require private employers with five or more employees to offer 10 annual days of paid personal time, allowing employees to take paid time off for any objective, including vacation, religious observances, bereavement, and time with family. "But also a reminder the New York City can help lead the nation".
But de Blasio said about 600,000 New Yorkers, including many Caribbean immigrants, remain without insurance, "because they do not or can not enrol".
As CBS2's Janelle Burrell reports, there are still many questions that have to be answered about the two proposals, like the cost and eligibility requirements for health care and the impact the vacation time mandate would have on small businesses.
The idea took inspiration from San Francisco's version of universal health care, Healthy San Francisco, enacted in 2007.
I don't know how we are going to pay for this, but I have a suspicion that part of this will be my responsibility.

We have high expectations of this camera, but we will really have to test it for ourselves to know how the camera performs. Also according to the leak, the Nokia 6 .2 will sport the Snapdragon 632 chipset from the semiconductor company Qualcomm.
All services will be affordable on a sliding scale.
The legislation would have to be passed by the City Council.
Conservative organizations and groups that represent employers said the paid vacation mandate proposed in NY would hurt the city's economy. "Today we celebrate our city's relentless commitment to accessible, high-quality health care".
The potential flood of new patients would be coming into the purview of a health care system that's spent years operating under a chronic shortage of primary care providers - a long-running challenge City & State documented last October.
"To be the fairest big city in America, New Yorkers can't be forced to choose between bringing home a paycheck and taking time off just to disconnect or spend time with loved ones", de Blasio said.
The mayor's team said it would advance legislation in the City Council to expand the transfer program and permit officials to take control of "upwards of 40 of the most distressed multi-unit buildings" each year. Part-time workers would fall under a mandate allowing them to accrue paid time off at a guaranteed minimum rate.
